Sort of looks like the address bar without the label.
Try right click empty area of taskbar and from the context menu look at "Toolbars", is anything checked?
Yes, "Power DVD" was, unchecking it fixed it. Thanks, I'm new to Windows 7 and I'm over thinking how complicated fixing problems is

there are icons but they are black and white also.
Thanks in advance.
